Road and Vehicles Detection System Using HSV Color Space for Autonomous Vehicle

Bhakti Yudho Suprapto, Aulia Ghaida, Hera Hikmarika, Suci Dwijayanti


Nowadays, an autonomous vehicle is one of the fastest-growing technologies. In its movements, the autonomous vehicle requires a good navigation system to run on the specified lane. One sensor that is often used in navigation systems is the camera. However, this camera is constrained by the process and its reading, especially to detect roads that are suitable for the vehicle's position. Thus, this research was conducted to detect the road and distance of nearby objects using the HSV color space method. From the test results, this research succeeded in detecting roads with an accuracy of 78.012 %, and an accuracy of 80% for the safe/unsafe area detection. The results also showed that the method achieved an accuracy of 80% and 74.76%for object detection and object distance detection, respectively. The results of this research implied that the HSV method wasquite good with fairly high accuracy to detect roads and vehicles.
